2003 Ford Focus ZTS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


My ZTS is amazingly fun to drive! I've
owned several cars over the years, but
the Focus is the best handling car I've
ever owned. It handles as well, or
better, than many European cars. For a
small car, the interior is very roomy
and comfortable. The seat height
adjustment with the tilt and
telescoping steering wheel really makes
finding the right seating position
easy. I would definitely recommend a
Focus if you want a small, dependable,
great handling car. I have test driven
a Dodge Neon, a Honda Civic, and a
Mazda Protege, and only the Mazda comes
close to the complete small car package
of the Ford Focus. As if you couldn't
tell, I love my car!

Best Features

Handling, of course! Large interior space and large trunk. Decent gas mileage. Peppy acceleration. Good stock stereo sound. Excellent reliability. Lots of standard features.

Worst Features

I'm a bit of a speed demon, so the Focus could always use some more power. I wish Ford would make a SVT version of the sedan! The only other suggestion is to make the back seat a true split folding rear seat, because the seat bottom doesn't split like the backrest.
